Great place with nice clean rooms with bathroom. The bar/breakfast area has a superb view over the bay especially during sunset. The German owners are very sympathetic and helpful. Nice garden with howler monkeys and an occasional sloth. Excellent breakfast in the morning.

We stayed here for two days and had a great time. Only three rooms make this a very cosy and personal accommodation. The owners - Bert and Sandra - were really lovely hosts. Pina colada's and Cuba libres made by them are fresh and delicious! The room we stayed in was clean, big and had airco (thankfully). Each morning we... More

I spent 8 days and nights here in March of 2016 and could not be any happier with my experience. Bambu Guesthouse is a real gem. The hotel is on the border of Portobelo National Park and a 2 minute walk to the Marina. We were on a budget and in 8 days were able to go hiking, snorkeling, visit... More

The house is really great. Although it is not by the sea, it offers a perfect view on it. You have breakfast on a deck looking at the sea, the house is in a beautifully kept garden, right at the edge of a rainforest. You can hear and see monkeys in the trees nearby. Sandra and Bert are very helpful... More

Looking for a place at the edge of a natural reserve as the Portobello National Park, where wildlife and forest are untouched ? Here's your room and terrace looking over the bay of Puerto Lindo for uncomplicated tastefully freshly prepared dinners (order in advance) by Sandra, co-owner of the Guesthouse. If you like so, Sandra will also guide you through... More

As a family of 4 with two teenage boys we visited Bamboo Guest House over Christmas 2015. The town of Puerto Lindo does not have much to offer, but Bamboo Guest House is nothing short of a pearl. The owners treated us more like old friends than hotel guests, and between the spectacular wild life on the hotel grounds, the... More

Bambu guesthouse is really a great place to stay. Very nice location on the edge of the rainforest, close to the village. Very nice and authentic rooms. Food is great, drinks are great and the host are great. Very flexible and knowledgable. I would recommend it anytime!

Bert and Sandra are the best Hostesses you can find. This is a lovely wood house on a hill facing Mamey Island and the Ocean. The place is Very Clean and the Breakfast is Excellent. Don't look for anything else in P. Lindo.........Take my word for it. Stay here and forget about the world you come from! Andres and Luz

We enjoyed our stay at Bambu Guesthouse. We wanted to get away for a few days and found this quiet place. It is located on a hillside but within walking distance to catch a boat to many islands. Bert and Sandra are very friendly and accommodating. They will chat with you or leave you alone. When we were not on... More

We traveled to Puerto Lindo with friends who stayed in Bambu Guest House. They loved their stay there. We stayed in another hotel because they didn't have a room for us, but we had an excellent dinner on the second floor terrace every evening and enjoyed the view over the bay. Bert and Sandra are very friendly hosts, and Sandra... More
